      I remained positive the entire time I went through my journey in spite of the days that I didn't think I could make it. But my faith and prayers has continued to allow me to remain positive and cancer free!! Don't ever give up because this too shall pass. Stay encouraged Sweetie! Love and Blessings Your Sister Of Hope!!

    Greetings Tonia although I was 52 years old when diagnosed with TNBC Stage 2 Grade 3 and no lymph nodes involvement . Thanks to an awesome medical team and aggressive treatment which consisted of a lumpmectomy , 16 rounds of chemo, 25 radiation treatments, faith in God, love, support from family and friends and a positive mind that BC was not going to destroy or control me I remain cancer FREE 6 years and 9 months later. I also had a 32 year old niece that was diagnosed with TNBC Stage 2 and 4 of her nodes tested positive with cancer she too had an aggressive treatment and remains cancer free 3 years later. You too will be a survivor and sharing your testimony with other women for years to come. Stay encouraged and know that this to shall pass.
    Love and Blessings My Dear Sister!!!

    Seven months ago I was diagnosed stage four and had metastasis in lungs, liver, spine, and ribs. I just had a mastectomy and the drs said I am in remission. No more cancer! Believe, think positively, and let the drugs do their work. Don't read anything on the Internet. There was a less than 4% chance I could ever beat my cancer and here I am.

    I had a triple negative too--chemo kills it! Keep fighting--you are amazing! (Don't google triple neg., a lot of its outdated and in the past few years they've found new chemo that it responds to)

    You can do it Tonia! Treatments are better than ever, and there's so much info on building your own immune system with diet and exercise to fight it. I'm stage 3c, 23 positive nodes. Stay strong!

    Stage 4 Patient

    Hi Toni's I'm 31 stage 4 I just quit my chemo but am thinking whether to do a mastectomy or not next. One of my doctors told me I will die if I didn't finish the protocol they gave me well I have to say this "we all will die" someday,, they have no way of telling how long we have so take each day as a gift and say no more worries because worrying can not add one minute to our lives , we should have all lived this way before breast cancer, god bless you and all in ur journey ,, it has been a adventure for me and I'm just starting to see that there is so much good in this journey

    Tonia, I'm so sorry for all you are going through. Chemo has the greatest benefit for women who are hormone negative. While this isn't easy, it is treatable. Blessing to you.

    Thank you lord! I am going thru TNBC since 2013, 2 lumpectomy and 28 nodes 16 cancer. I have done chemo radiation and chemo again to have both breast removed. Went to second opinion and getting ready for third opinion. I had no idea there are others going thru the say aggressive cancer. Praying that you are cancer free and remember if you are uncomfortable with your doctors or treatment get second third or even fourth until you get the correct treatment. May god bless you and I will include you in my prayers.
